If I understand this correctly, I think that what the author originally writes ideally should be something that is either XML or equivalent to XML. That can be done with LaTeX-like markup, but actual LaTeX (unless it is written under a tightly controlled regime) is just not a good domain for translation to anything other than a printed page. > Thank you for suggesting gellmu as a tool.
